  • [01] The Commission calls for greater access for European textiles exporters to markets outside the EU

    The European Commission is calling on countries outside the EU to open their own markets wider to European textiles exports. The Commission, which is finalising its own plans to open EU textiles markets under the second phase of liberalisation agreed within the Uruguay Round, is urging India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Brazil and other supplier countries to grant better access to European products so that the EU can afford to be more liberal in its own approach. European firms have a major interest, for example, in selling fitted carpets for hotels and offices in India, woollen jackets and silk blouses to Thailand and quality suits to South Korea, Argentina and Brazil.

    [02] The Commission clears the acquisition of sole control of AEG AAT by CEGELEC

    The European Commission has cleared the operation by which CEGELEC SA, a French company belonging to the Alcatel Alsthom group, will acquire, by way of purchase of shares, control of the whole of AEG AAT, a German company belonging to AEG, which is a majority-owned subsidiary of Daimler-Benz.

    [03] The Commission approves the creation of a joint venture company between Hoechst Schering AgrEvo GmbH and Marubeni Corporation

    The European Commission has approved the establishment of a joint venture in the field of the distribution of products for the agricultural and horticultural sectors. The joint venture, which will be active in Europe, is jointly controlled by Hoechst Schering AgrEvo GmbH, which is itself a joint venture of Hoechst AG and Schering AG, and the Japanese company Marubeni Corporation.

    [04] The Commission clears the acquisition of AEG T & D equipment business by GEC ALSTHOLM

    The European Commission has cleared the acquisition of the worldwide power transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment business of AEG by GEC ALSTHOM. GEC Alsthom is a Dutch joint venture between General Electric Company, and Alcatel Alsthom CGE, acting as an industrial holding company for a range of companies primarily operating in the energy and transport sectors. AEG is a German industrial company, majority owned by Daimler-Benz AG. The main business activities of AEG include rail systems, microelectronics, diesel engines, automation and electrical power systems.

    [05] Un plan d'action en 27 points pour la société de l'information dans les PECO

    La mise en place de la société de l'information doit être financée par des capitaux privés. Il existe cependant une importante responsabilité politique pour définir un cadre réglementaire, ainsi qu'une utilisation intelligente des fonds publics. C'est ce qu'a déclaré aujourd'hui Martin Bangemann, Commissaire en charge des technologies de l'information, des télécommunications et des affaires industrielles, en présentant aujourd'hui à Prague, en conclusion du 2e Forum de l'Union européenne et des pays d'Europe centrale et orientale sur la société de l'information, un plan d'action en 27 points visant à accélérer la mise en oeuvre de la société de l'information dans ces pays. "La société de l'information exige de nouvelles priorités en termes de recherche et développement, d'éducation et de formation ainsi que d'administration publique" a déclaré M. Bangemann. Le plan d'action contient sur ces questions des éléments pratiques qui doivent promouvoir le dialogue entre producteurs et utilisateurs.
